Large Flat Extra Short Instructions


Large Flat Extra Short Kit

This is the full kit and parts you will need to use the Large Flat Extra-Short magnetic flying stands.  From left to right:  Magnet alignment tool, 2x disk magnets (red and blue indicating polarity, try using the Magnicator), one clear acrylic rod.  You will need to supply one base and a model to magnetize.

LFES Step by step

Step 1:  Proceed from left to right: 
  • A: Insert one disk magnet into the magnet alignment tool.  Pay attention to polarity!  We are using "red up" polarity.  Apply glue to the bottom of the acrylic rod.  (See detail picture following.)
  • B: Insert the acrylic rod into the magnet alignment tool and glue it to the magnet.
  • C: Once the glue has set, remove the acrylic rod and disk magnet from the magnet alignment tool.  You can use a pin, paper clip (shown), or other tool to help remove the pieces from the tool.  There is a hole through the center of the tool to facilitate this.





LFES Detail

Step 1 (detail):  When inserting the disk magnet into the magnet alignment tool, it will recess slightly into the base of the tool.  The point where the rod and magnet touch should not be touching the tool, so hopefully no glue will cause the tool to be glued to either piece.  You may apply some light force to bend the "fingers" of the tool to help remove the parts from the magnet alignment tool.LFES Base

Step 2: Glue the acrylic rod & magnet to the base.  Make sure that the magnet is on top!

Step 3:  Turn your model over, and glue the fourth disk magnet to the middle of the model, approximately under the center of gravity.  Pay attention to the polarity again!  Using "red up" polarity here ensures it will be compatible with the magnet glued to the acrylic rod on the base.

LFES Finished


Final:  This is the completed Large Flat Extra-short flight stand magnetization kit.  You can see how the care in tracking the magnet polarity has allowed the parts to come together.
